XBPS 0.35 is out

A new XBPS stable version has been released: 0.35. This is a minor release that contains a new utility xbps-uchroot to be used by the XBPS source packages collection (among other things).

Release notes:

  • xbps-uchroot: new utility merged from xbps-packages/xbps-src that uses linux namespaces to bind mount and chroot to a target directory.

  • xbps-rindex(8): fixed a bug while signing repositories in that sometimes the PEM RSA public key buffer contained unwanted garbage.

  • Make sure that required root symlinks in void are never removed or detected as obsoletes; added new test cases to stress the code works as expected.
